Take Action on the Relief Subway Line!

Take Action on the Relief Subway Line!2019-01-24T17:14:37+00:00

    Our existing subway system isn’t serving the needs of Torontonians. Every day, we watch overcrowded trains go by while waiting on an overcrowded platform. Sign up to show your support for the Relief line and to hear updates about what you can do to help. Below, see details on writing to the Premier, the Ministry of Transportation and your local representative about the need for a Relief Line now.

    Take Action Now!

    Please write to the Premier of Ontario, the Minister of Transportation, and your local representatives to tell them:

    • You are tired of waiting for two or three trains on the overcrowded Yonge line.
    • You want a transit system that will curb gridlock by being a quality and realistic alternative to driving a car.
    • The Relief Subway will mean a faster route in and out of downtown for residents from across Toronto (including Scarborough and North York).
    • The current transit network in and out of downtown will reach capacity by 2031.
    • Tax dollars should be spent on our real transit priorities.
    • Toronto needs the Relief Subway now!

    Please copy my office at so that I can keep track of the numbers of emails sent.
